Using OctoPrint + Duet

Accessing Duet and OctoPrint

After Duet or OctoPrint have been setup you’ll be able to access your printer’s server from two places:

  1. Clicking the Duet or OctoPrint logo will take you straight to your printer’s web server in your web browser.

  2. After slicing, you can send your GCode file directly to your printer’s server with the button above the usual Save Gcode button.

Neither of these buttons will appear if you’re missing the Network URL (or for OctoPrint the API Key) from the currently activated printer profile.
